After a brief hiatus, Vince Staples is back with some brand new music. On Monday (Aug. 15), the California rhymer announced his next project on his Twitter account.
Staples is releasing a six-track EP called Prima Donna. The cover art is especially bizarre with the rapper’s head blown up like a balloon with a sad sack expression on his face.
XXL reports that Def Jam earmarked the release date as Aug. 26 with fans being able to pre-order limited edition vinyl copies starting Aug. 19. Only 5,000 pieces are available and they are each numbered and autographed by Vince.
As for the track list, there’s only two guest appearances: A$AP Rocky on “Prima Donna” and Kilo Kish on “Loco.” On the production front, producers No I.D., James Blake and DJ Dahi have contributed music on the project.
In addition, Staples also plans to shoot a short film to accompany the EP with famed director Nabil Elderkin helming the visuals.
You can catch Staples performing at several festivals this summer. He’ll be performing at the Maha Music Festival in Omaha, Neb., this Saturday (Aug. 20).
